We Love the Beach Cottages at Christmas!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited December 17-24. This was our third year at the Beach Cottages and first year in this unit. We stayed with our 3 grandchildren ages 3-8. They love it here as well. The unit is a good fit for our needs. It was clean and well furnished. It has many updates that make it much nicer than the other unit we've stayed in before. I would definitely stay in this unit again. With little ones eating out is really not a good time, so we prepared meals at the unit. I can think of a few things for the kitchen that would have made preparing meals easier, but we were able to make do with the items we had. We enjoyed our stay, and the only thing that could have made it any better would have been another week.

Check in/out was easy.

Spacious renovated beachfront condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay the last week of October very much. Arrived early and were able to check in, which was a nice surprise! The condo was roomy for 3 people, newer furniture, beds were comfortable. Parking very convenient to condo, just down 2 flights of stairs. Easy access to pool and hot tub, which were beautiful. Gorgeous beach steps away! Other condo's we have stayed at in the area have been more crowded feeling. Quick access to pool was great, no noisy guests as have been reported previously.

Only downside was that the kitchen was poorly equipped. 2 toasters, neither of which worked. Few pans, not the right size to cook for 3. No kitchen soap for handwashing dishes.

Would definitely recommend and stay again!

The perfect beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

I am not sure that you can find a better condo on the beach for the price. The condo was well apportioned, the salt water pool was fantastic, and to walk right down a flight of stairs and be on the beach was incredible. We woke up every morning and had coffee on the balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico as we watched dolphins swim just off the beach. We were close to many great restaurants and the best thing is that the beach and roads were not nearly as busy as Clearwater Beach to the north, or St. Pete Beach to the south.. We were able to fish from the beach and right across the street in the inner coastal as well which led to much excitement for the kids, catching a variety of fish. There is a grocery store within a mile and we were able to stock the condo to our liking with snacks and drinks. The condo was clean, and the entire property was well taken care of, including the beach and pool deck area with 3 commercial grade grills for our use. Bath towels and sheets were fresh and soft and the master bedroom bed was pretty comfortable as well. The two twin beds were not quite as comfortable to me, but the kids never complained so they couldn't of been too bad. All in all, a great experience, a great condo that I will be returning to, and we have already recommended to some family members who will rent as well. Thanks again Rex for providing a great place for us to have a wonderful time in.

Wish we could've stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

This 2nd floor Gulf front condo has the greatest views from both balconies. The kitchen balcony is also very convenient for watching the family on the pool deck. We barely had the tv on because the view from the large gulf front balcony was better than any tv show. The condo is fully equipped and very clean. Beds were very comfortable as were the recliners in the living room. The convenience of having a washer and dryer in the condo were a plus. We loved everything about this condo. It had everything we would have had if it was our own. As for the location, again it is perfect. Very close to shopping, dining, churches and public fishing areas. Also, only 10 minutes from John Pass, known for very nice beach shops and restaurants including Bubba Gumps! We look forward to coming back and most definitely will stay here!

Beautiful condo right on the beach!! As described!

  • 5 of 5

I was concerned that the property would not be as depicted, but it was totally unfounded!! The condo was clean and just as described!! It is only a few steps away from the beach. The water was beautiful and warm each day and the beach wasn't crowded at all! The bathrooms were updated as specified as well as the kitchen. The morning ocean breeze was awesome to listen to as we cooked, chilled, or just prayed. The only suggestions I would make would be to update the comforters in the master bedroom, provide some beach chairs (we had our own tent, but the beach chairs there were broken), and update the televisions in the bedrooms to flat screens, although they are 32", since most broadcasts are in HD, the tube tvs are so fuzzy it's hard to make out the picture. Oh and there is wi-fi, but the connection was sometime spotty. We had a blast and would definitely stay again!!
